UK Artist of the Week: Gallery Circus

Our UK Artist of the Week are alternative rock twins Daniel and Graeme Ross, aka Gallery Circus. They’re set to release their latest riff-infused single “Club House Killer,” and there are many promising prospects on the horizon for the duo.

It’s hard to pin Gallery Circus down to a specific category. Their songs have elements of blues, alternative rock, pop punk, and indie—but this eclectic duo do not stick to the “norm.” Their raw energy akin to Royal Blood and Cold War Kids oozes from bar to bar, with Daniel’s undeniably infectious pop-rock vocals before the distortion-heavy guitar comes into play and turns everything up side down.

Daniel explains, “‘Club House Killer’ is a brutal story that depicts some of the characters we met when hanging out with a punk gang in Logan Square, Chicago. These guys swore by the punk rock motto: ‘Live fast, die young’—It was a crazy situation, so we grabbed a few bottles of whiskey and joined in for a little taste!”

Daniel and Graeme formed Gallery Circus while they were living in Chicago after playing in separate bands throughout their careers. Over the past year they have quickly built up a reputation as one of the UK’s most formidable new live bands and have supported acts such as Hanni El Khatib, King Charles, Little Comets, Kill it Kid, and Arcane Roots. This is the twins’ second release produced by Dan Austin (Pixies, Doves, Mallory Knox). The duo will also be releasing another single and EP later this year via Killing Moon.

Gallery Circus have already received praise from a plethera of well-regarded publications including The 405, The Crack, and Q magazine as well as BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Jen Long to name but a few.

“Club House Killer” by Gallery Circus is out on October 14th 2016 via Think Tank? Records.
